    A bad idiom??

    Hello!

    I'd like to know what is the meaning of "Somebody light the fuck up".
    Is that a bad idiom??

    It certainly would be considered impolite. (I don't know what it means.)

    you feel blue...something should not have happened and actually did

    You might say then:

    Somebody please light the fuck up.
    Come on, cheer (the fuck) up.

    Or

    Somebody might like to hit some veggie bowls
    .
